The renders look nice. You mentioned the rope lighting around the room. Honestly, it pretty much never gets used anyway. As for Atmos and the "Dolby market share" at home, with most studios going with DTS-HD Master Audio, I agree. H

Hi exlabdriver - Today's tube equipment is deliberately designed to have less "tube sound" than did products of old. Therefore, differences ARE more subtle - typically a bit more soundstage width/depth and a touch of "lushness"

Ah, and what about combining M3s and M22s in the same room?

Thank you both for the replies. Yes, listening distance will usually be around 3 meters, so the M3s will be an affordable solution. Do they also handle vocals well?

Looks good, very nice. Congrats Having your equipment outside the room lowers the noise floor.

Curved Air's new album -- North Star. Current albums from 60s and 70s bands have generally seemed pretty tired to me, but this one is like they just picked up where they left off 40 years ago, with all the good bits intact. Kirby Gregory is back on g

We're supposed to be metric here in Canada but I still think in feet so... 13 x 26 x 10 feet. Seems to me that 4 on-wall speakers (M3s or M22s, I would probably lean to M3s) should be fine for mostly-jazz listening (I'm interpreting that as *not* wal

Philip, welcome to Axiom. Although the total volume of a listening room is of some significance, by far the most important factor is the distance of the listening position from the speakers. A room doesn't have to be "filled" with sound at

One more possible thing to consider -- I found that after treating first reflection points the system seemed to be more tolerant of less-good recordings. If you're oriented on the long wall then the side FRPs are probably OK but think about floor/c

Those are great renders. I initially thought they were photographs, but I was struggling to identify the tower speakers in the first pic. For the two windows, could you make some kind of shutters with strong hinges and heavy material that did a good

I am considering on-wall speaker options for a farm house living room, 4x8x3,5 meters dimension. There is no loft, you can see the wooden structure of the roof, so the volume of the room is larger than usual. Would 4 speakers connected to a Yamaha R-

Gotta agree with Mark and Chess. This is a great thread for someone else searching for logic in the endless variables when it comes to system response, speaker character and room treatment. Good read and thorough explanations. Thumbs up!

I think that Murph hit the nail on the head. I had the M80 speakers and found them deliciously smooth with some of my tracks but sounding rather hollow and missing with others. I had to with some music crank up the bass to +6 to get it closer to so

The crossover changes are the most important IMO -- if I had your system I would listen to music without the subs and start with an 80 Hz crossover & Small setting for movies. Next, if you haven't done so already it would be good to experiment

Yes, as other replies have pointed out, at least part of the excessive bass heaviness which you're experiencing may be due to possibly having the M100s and the sub "doubling" the bass. If you have the M100s set "Large", the crosso

At the risk of coming across the wrong way, if I had the M100's I wouldn't be using subs (most of the time).

Similar to above: M2s or M22s with sub. Otherwise, M3s. Or if you like extra bass, M3s AND a sub! Buy good mounts and good screws and if in doubt, put them into a stud and you won't have any issue. In the least use wall plugs if going into drywall.
